Small Weddings With Lots of Love
Gorgeous settings for Vermont elopements and small celebrations.
Vermont Elopements & Microweddings at the Grafton Inn
From private elopements to intimate wedding celebrations with a small group of guests, our beautiful Vermont country inn is an ideal setting to celebrate your love. Our inn offers an array of beautiful indoor and outdoor ceremony spaces, with all-inclusive packages that make planning your special moment seamlessly simple.
Thinking of Eloping or Planning a Microwedding in 2021?
You can trust us to host and help plan your day in Grafton! We successfully hosted many microweddings and elopements throughout the 2020 season, and anticipate doing the same this year due to postponement overflow limiting 2022 availability everywhere. If you love the idea of a stress-free wedding day, being able to take photos and interact with all of your guests, and making your marriage the centerpiece of a beautiful celebration, then you’ll love the elopement or microwedding experience at Grafton.
Hear it directly from some of our couples!
A getaway for two, plus some I Do’s. Grafton Village is charmingly rural, steeped in history, and surrounded by a picturesque landscape year-round. What better setting to privately start your next chapter as newlyweds? Our elopement package is caringly crafted to include everything you need to make your special day memorable and romantic.
Dreaming of an event that’s larger than an elopement, yet more intimate than your average wedding? Looking for the perfect opportunity to celebrate vow renewals? Our microwedding package may strike the ideal balance for your special day. Microweddings incorporate your favorite traditional wedding elements on a smaller scale that still allows for celebration with a close-knit circle of family and friends.
Available to book on select dates (mostly weekdays) in May, June, and July 2021. Please see our inquiry form for available dates. There are no dates available for September and October 2021.
“We canceled our large wedding this fall and decided to look for a micro wedding package instead due to COVID-19. The Grafton Inn really thought of everything when they put together this all inclusive package. From the rehearsal dinner, accommodations, wedding ceremony and reception, flowers and food they went above and beyond! They allowed us to customize and add any detail we wanted, we had 24 guests at our wedding and every single person raved about the venue, food, adorable town and service they received. For any couples looking to downsize their wedding but not sacrifice the small and special details, the Grafton Inn has the perfect micro package for you!”
